as some of you may know, a small but growing team has been working on a
completely new website over the past months, and we're making good progress!
Apart from a new and fresh design, that will finally also properly
support mobile phones and tablets, we've spent quite some time on the
backend system and shared various bits of information with you on this
We've decided to go with the Hugo static site generator, storing the
content in Markdown files and tracking changes in Git. There is no
longer a need to request permission for editing the content or the site
structure and localisation can happen in Weblate.
As the website should be for you, our Community, we're eager to hear
your feedback on the editing process of the proposed new website and
we've decided to provide another testing facility! Master choreographer
Guilhem whipped up an infrastructural dance routine, which makes it
possible to preview changes to the website online. Please do give it a
try and share your questions and feedback with us:
- here on the mailing list
- privately to ilmari.lauhakan...@libreoffice.org
- on the #tdf-infra chat channel
We'd like to encourage especially the localisers who need unique pages
to try things out.
Editing the website comes in three easy steps:
1. Edit the website in Gerrit as in the recorded demonstration:
2. Wait 5 minutes
3. Visit https://newdesign2.libreoffice.org/changes/1234 where 1234 is
your Gerrit change number
All kinds of nonsensical changes are welcome - just write the commit
message in a way that it is clear you are testing.
Don't hesitate to reach out for any questions you may have!
